Sleep Sleep Sleep

Posted in: Heath, Lifestyle, People, Personal

Wouldn’t it be great if we didn’t have to sleep? We would have 8 hours of work and 16 hours of time to yourself. To be realistic, we would probably work 10-12 hours a day if we didn’t have to sleep since we like to be productive. Technology would advance at a quicker pace and we’d be producing/consuming more every day. Anyway, without proper rest, our bodies don’t perform as well. To ensure that I can do all the things that I want to do, I need a plan because I’ve been sleeping 4-6 hours every night. For some reason, I get even less sleep on the weekends!

To get myself into bed earlier, I’m going to eliminate the thing that keeps me up. So what keeps me up? It’s the computer (with internet access)!

What am I going to do? I’ve set an alarm on my BlackBerry for 9pm (1 hour before bed time) to inform me that all connectivity devices are to be turned off. There are no exceptions! If I’m in the middle of typing up a blog post, I would have to save it, turn off the laptop, and complete it another day. If I’m sexting some random that I met at a party, the phone is going to be turned off. Too bad! If I’m watching a really good YouTube video, I’m not even going to let it finish playing! Okay, I most likely would watch the remainder of it, but if there are 10 minutes left, then I’ll watch it another day. I’m going to give this a try and hopefully my will power remains strong, resulting in at least 7 hours of sleep every night.

You can do the same. What’s your biggest distraction from bed?
